Leskovac International Film Directing Festival – LIFFE was founded in 2008 with the aim to promote films and authors from the country and the region. It is dedicated to film directing and during its 15-year-long history, it has developed into a prestigious manifestation that widely surpasses local frames and has been gaining increasing popularity with filmophiles and film directors in the region. Special attention is dedicated to young, not well-known film authors and students of film directing. Apart from offering the programme variety, the festival enables filmmakers to meet, thus making the basis for the creation of a qualitative and diverse market.

It is held every year (the third week in September) and organized by Leskovac Cultural Centre. The most valuable projects from the region are presented at the festival in several programme categories: Students’ film, Series, Wild film, Main competitive programme and LIFFE premiers. Each year the festival tries to offer a wide spectrum of additional events: book promotions, forums and talks with famous actors and film directors, exhibitions and concerts.

Additional importance is given to the festival by the traditional conference of film directors and producers, which aims to find new models of cooperation and networking between the production and distribution of films from the countries in the region. This unique platform enables easier collaboration between film professionals and helps develop a chain of values in filmmaking. It also contributes to the enlargement of the market as well as to the creation of more qualitative film productions.
